Mt. Bachelor pow

Congratulations to Mike Galliano for submitting the winning entry in Skiing Magazine’s Spot-the-Error Limerick Contest. He successfully identified our goof in the Mt. Bachelor section of Skiing's Resort Guide (Mt. Bachelor is in Oregon not Washington as we printed) and did an excellent job of channeling a powder-fueled Edward Lear. He will be receiving a Mt. Bachelor getaway for four people that includes three nights lodging at Seventh Mountain Resort and three days worth of lift tickets to the mountain.

A big thanks goes out to Mt. Bachelor and Seventh Mountain Resort for helping us make it all happen.

Without further adieu, the winning poem.

Mt. Bachelor has a form pyroclastic
And views from the top quite fantastic
Standing all on its own
With a tree-line for throne
And skiing that makes it bombastic!
--Mike Galliano


The lower 48’s highest peak is often a training ground for mountaineers looking to conquer higher peaks, but that doesn’t mean that with some skills or a guide it can still be attainable for savvy backcountry skiers.

Where to Ski in August

August is when the itch gets the worst. Hot, lazy days lose their shine. The buzz of the air conditioner starts to burn your eardrums. And winter feels SO far away. And it is, but a plane ticket or a long hike could change that. Here’s where you can get your midsummer fix.

Mt. Hood Meadows, OR

Mt Hood Meadows

You'll find high-speed cruisers over three miles long, and nearly a dozen wide-open bowls dropping into expansive, north-facing Heather Canyon.
